You've never seen Communism in practice as it's an utopian idea. There have never been communist countries, only parties that claimed (and failed) to be communist.
And you will never see it at all. It does not matter if its a Utopian idea. It has been implemented time and time again, with the same results.
You argue over idea/theory vs reality.
a theory or system of social organization in which all property is owned by the community and each person contributes and receives according to their ability and needs.

Anarchy is as much a pipe dream as communism. Both ideologies ignore human nature.
Xi Jinping thought is the ideology approved by the Communist Party last October. Officially, it is "Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for the New Era".
Schoolchildren, college students and staff at state factories will have to study the political ideology, which the Communist Party is trying to portray as a new chapter for modern China.
